Agriculture

Agriculture technology or AgTech is the use of technology in agriculture, horticulture, and aquaculture with the aim of improving yield, efficiency and profitability for farm managers and growers.

With the integration of IoT, agriculture stands to gain a high degree of efficiency, both in time and labor and in waste. Precision agriculture is the practice of gathering and analyzing data to ensure optimal conditions for crops and livestock using the minimum possible resources and may include solutions like IoT-enabled irrigation management or crop health management.

Agriculture Use Cases

Precision Farming

Precision farming, or precision agriculture, is an umbrella concept for IoT-based approaches that make farming more controlled and accurate. In simple words, plants and cattle get precisely the treatment they need, determined by machines with superhuman accuracy. The biggest difference from the classical approach is that precision farming allows decisions to be made per square meter or even per plant/animal rather than for a field. By precisely measuring variations within a field, farmers can boost the effectiveness of pesticides and fertilizers, or use them selectively.

Automation in Smart Greenhouses

Traditional greenhouses control the environmental parameters through manual intervention or a proportional control mechanism, which often results in production loss, energy loss, and increased labor cost. IoT-driven smart greenhouses can intelligently monitor as well as control the climate, eliminating the need for manual intervention. Various sensors are deployed to measure the environmental parameters according to the specific requirements of the crop. That data is stored in a cloud-based platform for further processing and control with minimal manual intervention.

Livestock

As is the case of precision agriculture, smart farming techniques enable farmers better to monitor the needs of individual animals and to adjust their nutrition accordingly, thereby preventing disease and enhancing herd health. Large farm owners can use wireless IoT applications to monitor the location, well-being, and health of their cattle. With this information, they can identify sick animals, so that they can be separated from the herd to prevent the spread of disease.

Tank Level Monitoring

IoT-enabled tank monitoring solutions use battery-powered sensors to identity and track tank levels for a variety of liquids, including gas. By allowing users to remotely track tank levels and usage, tank monitoring solutions eliminate the need for manual meter reading and assessments. Also applies to grains and other solids.
